Legal Forms: Oregon

Introduction

This research guide provides information about forms available in the Multnomah Law Library and online. Forms are sample versions of standard legal documents. They must be adapted to meet individual needs and jurisdictional requirements. There are two types of legal forms:

(1) procedural forms to be filed in court (such as complaints, motions, and interrogatories); and

(2) transactional forms used to complete legally enforceable agreements between parties (such as wills, leases, and contracts).

Forms are compiled into sets that are subject-specific, jurisdiction-specific, or general.  You can find them in law library books and electronic databases such as Westlaw and Bloomberg Law.  Forms are also available through state and federal court websites and other online sources.
